Pasta with Pancetta and Tomato Sauce
Contributed by: Suzanne Overstreet
  • 6 ounces pancetta, diced
  • 2 TBS olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • Sea salt
  • 2 garlic cloves, coarsly chopped
  • Pinch dried crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 (28-ounce) can of tomato puree
  • 1 pound linguine
  • 1/2 cup grated Pecorino Romano
Add the pancetta to a heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add olive oil and saute until golden brown, about 8 minutes. Add the onion and saute until tender, about 5 minutes. Season with salt. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes. Saute until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in the tomato puree. Simmer uncovered over medium-low heat until the sauce thickens slightly and the flavors blend, about 15 minutes. Season the sauce with salt, to taste.
Meanwhile, boil the linguine in a large pot of boiling, salted water until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes. Drain, reserving 1 cup of the cooking liquid.
Toss the linguine with the sauce in a skillet, adding some of the reserved cooking liquid until the pasta is moist. Be careful not to dilute the sauce. Toss with cheese. Season with salt, to taste.
